Details of swap:
Do you have a fandom that is pretty well known but most of the time by people who arent really that into it or have only seen the movie/show? Or people who have just skimmed the top of its potential?
  I am a huge Star Wars fan but I dont always want to walk around with a Star Wars logo on my shirt. I tend to appreciate things that are of that universe but dont scream Star Wars. For example I have a Dewback Brewery shirt. Not everyone immediately associates that with Star Wars. The casual interest person probably wouldnt take a second glance at it but the true SW geek would get it immediately.
 I recently saw an apron with Mellark Bakery on it and thought it was brilliant. My sister didnt get it, even though she watched and liked the Hunger Games movies. Remember Drive Shaft from Lost (or Oceanic Airways, Mr Clucks Chicken Shack, there were so many)? I still have a Greendale Community College shirt from the TV show Community. And I got my Dad a drinking glass with a Red Pony logo on it from the fictional bar in Longmire. Or what about Fangtasias from TrueBlood? Soft Kitty from Big bang Theory. I could go on and on.
 How about a swap for those of us with Fandoms that dont want it to be so obvious? This would be a swap for regular fandoms that we dont want to be so blatant about or it could also be used for fandoms of things, like books, that dont really have too many items available. But you would have to be specific with your partner if you are doing something like a book or something more obscure. The intent of this swap wouldnt be to force someone to read a bunch of books or watch hours of an unknown TV show.
 Yes, it's a long Questionnaire but if it's undercover than most would not have picked up on it so I want to be helpful to partners. Communication will be helpful too!

This swap will be for 1 medium and 2 smalls. You can spoil but please discuss that with your partner first.

There has been a bit of confusion as to what is a large, medium, and small item.  So here's a handy dandy guide.  This is a guideline ONLY: a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost:

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

22  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Undercover Fandom Swap on: February 19, 2016 10:19:57 AM


Do you have a fandom that is pretty well known but most of the time by people who arent really that into it or have only seen the movie/show? Or people who have just skimmed the top of its potential?
  I am a huge Star Wars fan but I dont always want to walk around with a Star Wars logo on my shirt. I tend to appreciate things that are of that universe but dont scream Star Wars. For example, I have a Dewback Brewery shirt. Not everyone immediately associates that with Star Wars.

  How about a swap for those of us with Fandoms that dont want it to be so obvious? You would have to list out certain items or things that were specific to your fandom on the questionnaire to make it easier for your partner in case they werent as into it as you are but I think this could be a fun swap.
  This would be a swap for regular fandoms that we dont want to be so obvious about. It could also be used for fandoms of things, like books, that dont really have too many items available. But you would have to be specific with your partner if you are doing something like a book or something more obscure. Communication would be key in that case.

  Would anyone else be interested in something like this?
23  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Blue Trees Sandra Saddle Bag on: February 17, 2016 01:32:25 PM
 I made a purse for the Make a Purse and Fill It Swap and my Mom really liked the style. This was that bag.
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=443440.0
 I was going to surprise her with a new purse but she asked me to make her one out of the pink circles fabric after I had already secretly ordered her different fabrics. I decided to go ahead and make both and let her chose which one she wanted.
 Its a cross body saddle bag with plenty of room. It has a nice wide gusset and a big exterior pocket along with a smaller zippered interior pocket.
 After I finished this purse I really, really liked it. Unfortunately so did my Mom. Tongue Ha! She chose this bag as hers. I got to keep the original one she asked for so we both got purses. Win-win. Wink



This was the back

 I have to admit I was not so secretly hoping to keep this one. But my Mom is worth it. I knew she would like this one better once she saw it. The gold parts of the fabric were metallic and was so beautiful. Absolutely gorgeous fabric.
 Thanks for checking it out!  Grin
24  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Effervescence Sandra Swoon Bag on: February 17, 2016 01:17:48 PM
 Its been a while since I have been on this board but February has been the month for me to get back into making purses it seems.
 I joined the Make a Purse and Fill It Swap and my partner had commented on a couple bags styles that she liked. I thought this bag did a good job of combining a lot of what she liked into one so I decided to give it a try.
 The bag has a flip up magnetic snap on the front to keep it secure and an extra front pocket. It also has a nice wide gusset so it held more than I thought it would originally. Which I was happy about.
 I think the solid black gusset keeps it from looking too busy, at least I hope so. My Mom saw this purse and liked it so I planned on making her one. I ordered her fabric but then she requested it be out of the same fabric so I made another one but with a different interior since my Moms favorite color is blue.
 This is the one I sent to my swap partner. She likes pink like I do. I think I like the front of this one best since it has more black at the bottom to break it up more.
,

 This is the one I originally made for my Mom. I went ahead and made one out of the fabric I ordered for her and she ended up liking that one more (I knew she would, she loves blue) so I ended up taking this one.



 It has taken me three attempts to post this so hopefully (fingers crossed) this time works.
 Thanks for checking them out. I now have the purse sewing bug again! Grin
25  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Stewie and Walking Dead Bibs for Fun Parents on: September 29, 2015 05:54:32 AM
 I made these two bibs with the hope that my friend would have a good sense of humor about them. She did. LOL!
 Every time I see Stewie I think of him saying Mommy, Mom, Mama, Mommy, Mommy, Mom, over and over again. I made this bib with my friend. We had a sewing day so she could learn to sew a little. The bibs and burp clothes are so easy I thought they would be a great start.
 The Stewie bib and burp cloth have a super soft snuggly flannel for the backing and an extra layer of 100 cotton inside for absorbency.

 And here is the Walking Dead bib because I think babies can look a tad like zombies while they eat. Tongue LOL! It had a soft gray minky fabric with stars imprinted into it for the backing.

 Thanks for looking (and having a sense of humor with them).
26  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Mermaid and Woodland Animal Bib & Burp Cloths on: September 08, 2015 11:25:14 AM
 Ill be honest, I didnt even know this board existed! Tongue Tell me if I am on the wrong board but I figured this would work here since kids wear bibs???  Huh I dont have any kids or young ones in my family but I made these bib and burp cloth sets as a gift to my ex-BILs gf. I thought they would be a nice gift and I was dying to try out my KAM snap pliers. Ill probably end up making her some more stuff so I am going to check out this board for ideas! Cheesy
 I used a very soft and absorbent gray fabric for the backing. It has pretty little stars on it. I figured gray would work for both fabrics and not be overly girly.
 I couldnt help but get super girly with the pink mermaid set. I bought this fabric a while ago when I first saw it because it was so cute but had no idea what to make out of it. I think the bib worked out perfect. Both burb cloths are 10X18. I hope she likes them. I plan to make her a couple more sets as well.




 Thanks for checking them out!
27  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Faerie Bed and Twig Faerie on: July 13, 2015 07:13:43 AM
 I'm not sure if I have this in the right spot. Sorry if I don't! I don't normally make miniatures but decided to give it a shot and joined the miniature swap. I made this for my partner who is decorating a fairy house. I realized I wasn't that talented at paper crafting for the swap so I tried to sew for it since I am more comfortable with that.
 
 I used sticks from my yard and I wrapped wire and twine around it to keep it together. Then I glued and tied flowers and moss to it.

 Then I made a little mattress and was so excited because it was the first time I used the fancy stitches on my machine. LOL!

 I made a little patchwork quilt and pillows along with a Twig faerie to enjoy it. You can see the headboard a little better in this pic.

 Admittedly the fairy ended up looking like a creeper but I was aiming for a twig.  Undecided

 I hope my partner liked it. I had a lot of fun making it!
28  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Dictionary Pendants on: July 10, 2015 07:09:20 AM
 I tried to make the dictionary text pendants but I don't think I sprayed the large one with enough sealer. It's okay cas that was the one for myself. I wasn't sure if anyone else was as proud of their cat lady status as I am.  Tongue


 I still think it looks interesting. It has a more vintage and aged feel to it. Yeah, that's what I will go with.  Wink
 I used dictionary pages printed on cardstock and Distressing ink.
 
 Thanks for looking.  Grin
29  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Glowing Star & Steampunk Pendants on: July 10, 2015 07:01:29 AM
 I recently finished up the Pendant swap and wanted to share what I made.
 A while ago I made couple Steampunk Pendants out of Sculpey and decided to try it with another shape so I chose Stars!


 The backgrounds glow in that dark but I couldn't get a decent picture of it.
 Here are the ones I made earlier. They glow too.

 I tried tinting them with chalk but in the end likes the look of alcohol inks better on them.
30  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Birdhouse Pendants on: July 10, 2015 06:52:41 AM
 I always want to wear more necklaces in the summer since I don't have a scarf covering them up. I joined the pendant swap this round and this is one of the designs I decided to try. I have always loved the birdhouse pendants but thought cutting the roofs would be cumbersome and a pain. I found the squares with holes and pegs at Michaels and decided to try using Sculpey to make the roof. I think it turned out pretty cute and saved my fingers from some unwanted bloodletting.
 Here are the fronts

 and the backs

 I love the look of Dictionary pages in artwork and wanted to use inspirational and nice words on them.

 While I was doing the clear coat I realized what this one said on the back. It was completely random so it made it so much funnier to me. Yes, It reads "beat a person" in bold text no less.  Roll Eyes

 Here's a shot of how I made them taller. I glued, painted and sanded them before adhering the dictionary pages.

 Thanks for checking them out. I had a lot of fun making them and suspect a couple family members might get some for Christmas.
